Four from Burnette Shutt & McDaniel included in new Super Lawyers

HeadshotsCOLUMBIA, SC – Four employment lawyers from Burnette Shutt & McDaniel are included in the just-released 2021 edition of “Super Lawyers,” a national directory of the country’s leading attorneys.

The four also are listed in “South Carolina Super Lawyers,” a guide to top attorneys in the Palmetto State, in the following practice areas:

• M. Malissa Burnette, Employment Litigation: Plaintiff
• Nekki Shutt, Employee Benefits
• Janet Rhodes, Employment & Labor Law
• Grant Burnette LeFever, a Rising Star in Employment Litigation: Plaintiff

Selection for the national publication comes after a stringent process that includes peer review and independent research. Only about 5 percent of a state’s attorneys are selected for “Super Lawyers” each year. Rising Stars, a designation for attorneys under age 40 or with less than 10 years’ experience, is limited to around 2.5 percent of lawyers eligible.

Burnette and Shutt are two of the firm’s founders. Both are South Carolina Supreme Court Certified Specialists in Labor and Employment Law poised to fight for clients in all state and federal courts in South Carolina.

Rhodes, also a partner at the firm, is a skilled litigator who represents clients in often-complicated employment law cases.

LeFever’s practice includes education and family law in addition to employment law, civil rights and discrimination cases.
